Activities and Things to do in Phnom Penh

 

Phnom Penh is a good city for walking as it is organized on a grid. Start the day right by praying for good luck and fortune at Wat Phnom. Make your way to the National Library, pause in front of the Hotel Le Royal, swing by Phnom Penh's grand train station.

Maneuver your way to Psar Thmei and Sorya Shopping Center and allocate sufficient time for the Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda and National Museum. End your tour with a pleasant stroll along the riverfront and rest your feet at one of the many bars and restaurants.
